It started with the Mayan prophecy and now, the end of the world predictions are heightened because the fateful date stated in those predictions which is December 21, 2012 is just around the corner. No matter what type of media you look into – be it online, print, radio, TV – you can definitely find various stories and reports regarding the foret upcoming destruction of Earth and all life in it.
A lot of people are now preparing for that particular year or day. As you may have observed, several articles, books, magazines, radio shows, TV series, blogs and even movies have featured or focused on the topic that is the 2012 doomsday. Many are scrambling to find ways on how to survive 2012 and the huge disasters that are anticipated to happen on that day. But do you really need a detailed survival guide to make it through this hot mess of epic proportions?
The answer to that is "not really." You only need three simple things or factors to survive 2012. One is by having enough knowledge and constantly scouring for information. By learning what's going on around you – the latest news about the 2012 doomsday, the details you need to know like where to go, what to do, who to trust and all that – you give yourself quite an advantage over the others who are clueless and chances are will become helpless as well once the dreaded prophecies turn into reality. You do not have to believe everything. Just store enough information in your mind for you to extract later on when needed.
Skills or more specifically, survival skills are necessary as well. It's like sharpening your human instincts that have been dull for years of relying on comfort, support and convenience bought to us by machines and modern lifestyle. If you do not know how to light a fire without using matches, gas or electricity, then you'd better start learning now. Other skills that should be honed involve building a shelter, hunting for food and protecting yourself at all times.
You can get by with just knowledge and skills but it is best if you have strong faith as well. Those two factors mentioned earlier will not be as useful as they should be if you lack trust in what you can do. Believe in yourself. Believe that you can make it through and you will. It does not necessarily mean faith based on any religion or whatever. Just a strong faith in yourself and you're good to go.
If you want to survive 2012, you have to make sure you got those three factors checked and in place. There are many ways wherein you can improve your knowledge and skills in preparation for the dreaded end of days. You can read related books or watch video clips.
